Same stands for Engineering as a career. There is a reason why it is an evergreen career option.
It’s become fashionable to criticize people who hope their kids take up engineering as a profession in life. But the truth is the criticism is for the idea of influencing your child’s choice of career on the basis of market demand and not for engineering as a profession.
The world will require engineers for ages to come for creating, constructing, maintaining, renovating, recycling to reusing everything humans use in this world from phones to satellites, software to supercomputers, from taps to dams, from tricycles to space shuttles, from tents to skyscrapers, from needles to Robotic check-ups, the list is never ending!
So if you have the #IAM – Interest, Aptitude and mindset to become an Engineer you are lucky to have the option of working under and over the seas, on land and in mines, over the mountains and in tunnels, on the frozen Poles to the hot deserts, and in homes and space stations.
After equipping yourself with an engineering degree you can become an engineering College professor, a research and development engineer, production or quality control engineer, marketing or sales and service engineer in the branch of Computer Science and Information Technology , Electronics and Communication , Electrical , Mechanical , Civil, Aeronautical, Automobile, Chemical, Architecture, Petroleum, Automation and Robotics, Genetics, Marine, again a long list of options to suit your Interest.
Where you get your degree from matters in your initial years of job hunting, once experienced your work and attitude speaks. Before taking admission in a B. Tech course please check its credibility from the Ministry of Human Resource Development website.
